Be The Match Spokesperson and Donor David McVeigh explained that for patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, and other life-threatening diseases, a cure exists. David shared how he became inspired to be a donor and his own experience donating in February of this year.
Be The Match is a community of donors, volunteers, health care professionals and researchers who deliver cures by helping patients get the life-saving marrow or cord blood transplant they need. 70 percent of patients do not have a donor in their family. They depend on Be The Match. Be The Match facilitates more marrow and cord blood transplants every year6,300 transplants in 2013, for a total of 61,000 transplants since 1987. Every dollar they raise helps more patients afford transplant, adds potential marrow donors to the registry and funds our life-saving research.
